We buy the pullenta in the tube, slice it and put it under the broiler until crispy and light brown, then put a sm spoonful of sauce and some low fat cheese and under the broiler. my fav. polenta is the sundried tomato garlic one they have here in my Harris Teeter. my family loves it and i like to use it as appetizer at parties.

interesting, will have to try it. There is a polenta mock pizza in the recipes that's good. Use sliced polenta from a tube and put a spoonful of spagetti sauce on it, cheese and italian spices and cook for a few minutes, pretty good!

Have not tried it but it sounds like you need to bake the crust first some and then add the topping on and bake some more,

I buy the premade polenta in a tube. I slice it and fry or grill in a pan (using spray or only a small amount of oil) until it is crisp. You could add topping to each one after making them crisp and then bake till cheese melts. I really like Udi's pizza crust and have seen a corn meal crust in the freezer case but don't remember what kind it is. Just my preference I like polenta plain...

I have not tried polenta but generally if it is soggy it is either too thick or not prebaked long enough. Hope you sort it out!

Hi. Here's one way: When the polenta is thick and comes off the sides of your pot, spread it on your greased (sprayed) pizza pan or pie plate and bake it at 400o for 15 mins. Once the crust can easily slide out of the pan, you know it's ready to add only a small amount of a thick-type sauce and spread it well. Then add a bit of topping and bake at 400o for another 20 mins. or so. I hope that works for you. I'm sure there are other ideas out there, too.

Last night, I tried to make pizza with polenta as the crust. I baked the polenta first, but it still came out very soggy. Any suggestions?
